Mediation is a part of the civil law process that is intended to provide parties involved a civil legal dispute the opportunity to reach amicable resolutions to some or all issues of contention outside of the courtroom.
In a court setting, the judge will hear arguments and make rulings on all areas of dispute. This can be costly to both parties, result in decisions that may be considered unacceptable to one or both parties, and will directly affect the lives of all persons involved, including the children. Not to mention all judgments are final and become standing court orders.
Mediation allows both parties to come together to negotiate, discuss, and attempt to reach solutions to areas of disputes that may be acceptable for all parties that are involved in the family law civil litigation dispute. Being able to successfully reach amicable resolutions to some or all contested issues takes element of surprise of a judge’s decision out of the equation.
Mediation may be entered into voluntarily or ordered by the court. Mediation is often less expensive than a long drawn out court battle.
